Actress Helen McCrory died of cancer in April 2021. Her husband Damian Lewis seems to be ready for love again. She herself strongly encouraged him to do so and only asked him to wait for her funeral.
It's been over a year since actor Damian Lewis said goodbye to wife Helen McCrory. The British actress died of cancer in April 2021 at the age of 52. Around 14 months after the loss, Lewis seems to be open to love again. According to British media reports, he was recently spotted on several dates with singer Alison Mosshart.
"Mail on Sunday" reports that the actor and the musician were spotted together on the London public transport system last Thursday. A passenger told the newspaper that the stars were "100 percent romantic" and they looked like they were on a "hot date". The supposed couple seemed "very happy" together.
That same evening, Lewis and Mosshart appeared together at the summer party at London's Serpentine Gallery. Photos of the event show the two smiling and deep in conversation. A week earlier, the "Homeland" actor and Mosshart were spotted together for the first time. They posed for photos together at a fundraiser at London's National Gallery. It is unclear if they met there. So far, neither The Kills singer nor the actor have commented on the love rumors.
Before her death, Lewis' wife McCrory encouraged him to have girlfriends, "a lot of them". The 51-year-old revealed this in a moving article about the late "Harry Potter" actress for the "Sunday Times". She added, in her typically humorous way, "At least try to get the funeral over with without making out with anyone."
Her two children, 15-year-old Manon and 14-year-old Gulliver, also wanted to comfort the dying native of London. "Don't be sad," she said to them. "Even though I'll be giving up soon, I've lived the life I wanted to live."
